David Vann, the author of the upcoming Caribou Island (one of Book Beast’s most anticipated books of 2011) has a free e-novella that is available as of today.
The novella, entitled Sukkwan Island, recently won France’s prestigious Prix Medicis award for best foreign novel and was originally published in the U.S. as part of a collection called Legend of a Suicide.
To celebrate, and to give people a taste of David’s breathtaking writing in advance of the release of Caribou Island, HarperCollins is giving it away along with an excerpt of the new book.
You can downloand your free copy of this novella from Amazon, Sony or Kobo. It is also available in the iBookstore for Apple products, and should be available for the Nook shortly.
Isn't that cool? This author is new to me, so I'm looking forward to sampling his rave-reviewed work.
